I won't be using them as a host in future. Please bear with me whilst I re-load the lost files onto another, more reliable host.

Alan says the ning is open to all to join.
A Ning is a new social networking platform - it allows you to set up an area which can be open to anyone, or closed off. Posts can have documents attached, which makes it another way to share resources for downloading for free, and photos, blogs and movies can also be added.

TEACHING IDEA FOR CHANGES TO CLIMATE AS A RESULT OF GLOBAL WARMING
There'll be LESS OF THIS and MORE OF THIS...
Create a powerpoint with a series of images representing changes which we are likely to see as the climate changes...
See who can produce the best set of images which show the changes that we can expect
Try to think of some intriguing changes...
For example a view of people sat inside eating round a table and others sitting around a barbeque in the garden, or at a pavement cafe.
Temperature related change: disease / health / clothing etc...
Try to alternate the LESS and MORE slides, and have perhaps some sort of connections between them....
Here is a basic template and a starter powerpoint, with the animations which fade the words in and out on the slide... You will need to add other slides, and of course an image on each one which will be behind the text. May need to move the text, or may want to add a semi-transparent box behind the text, or change the colour of the text. Each slide is set for 10 seconds which allows time for the text to fade in and out, and the transition is for a fade through black, which I like, but which you can change....
Could also attach music to the first slide and set to play through the duration of the presentation...

Try this in your A Level lessons. Might wake them up!
Alternative clocks - set time limits for activities in fun ways:
Finish before the ice cube melts;
Finish before the slice of apple is not eatable;
Finish before the cymbal fades;
Finish before the music stops;
Finish before the match burns down (careful)
Finish before the snail makes it to the food
